    Having been under the care of Mr David Bell for a number of years for a degenerative spinal condition, the time came for me to undergo interbody spinal fusion surgery. Importantly, this felt very much a joint decision between Mr. Bell and myself as he had provided me with all the information that I needed to make a completely informed decision. From then on, his calm reassurance and the efficiency of the support team around him resulted in a very smooth journey to the day of the procedure itself. Immediately following the surgery, Mr. Bell made himself available to discuss the outcome with my wife and to provide her with all the reassurances she needed. I cannot praise David highly enough, both on a clinical and personal level. I am truly indebted
